a: clear golden straw color.. lots of bubbles sticking to glass.. 2 finger head (bright white).. settles to almost nothing.
s: noble hops with a soft lemony like aroma.. sweet pale malts as well. also has a mild musty smell, which strangely i like.
t: upfront its musty, but not in an entirely bad way.. as it rolls on the tongue you get those sweet pale malts & some grassiness. backend is slightly bitter with the hops coming through at their peak. slight earthiness with mild spice for the hop bitterness. some musty characters do linger.. also a bit of a lemony quality as well.. nice little hoppiness at the end, but nothing that compares to ipas, etc.. just a good clean pilsner bitterness.
mf: light-medium body with crisp clean carbonation. cleanses the palate.
o: i had this a few months ago out of the can and was disappointed. maybe cuz i was already intoxicated. this beer actually surprised me.. at $1.59 a 16oz can, its somewhat of a bargain.
Serving type: can

Sampling right now on 7/22/14 and it has been a long since I had a regular "Beck's", probably since Orlando but that was 4 years ago easy. Originally from Germany but now brewed in the USA by the Bud folks in St. Louis, Missouri. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a vintage 11.2 ounce (330ml) 'Beck's handled-glass stein.
Pours a straw-yellow in color with a thin white head that settles down to just along the sides of the glass. No lacing is really seen, just a bit when sipped. The aroma is not much of really, just some grains. Not 'skunky' though like so many that come in a green bottle for some reason. The taste is pretty much the same just of some grain and hops. Not bitter but just plain for the most part. Overall, it is OK but nothing special but is smooth and refreshing. Bit watered-down though.
